LibriVox recording of The ART OF WAR, by Sun Tzu. Read by Phil Chenevert
First compiled in the 6th century BC, The Art of War presents a philosophy of war for managing conflicts and winning battles. It is accepted as a masterpiece on strategy and is frequently cited and referred to by generals and theorists since it was first published, translated, and distributed internationally. The book is not only popular among military theorists, but has also become increasingly popular among political leaders and those in business management. Despite its title, The Art of War addresses strategy in a broad fashion, touching upon public administration and planning. The text outlines theories of battle but also advocates diplomacy and cultivating relationships with other nations as essential to the health of a state. (Summary by wikipedia)

I feel as though such wise words that have stood the test of time should not be spoken hurriedly. It detracts from the text as well as I think the reader's tone is a bit high and distracting as well. The short time given to digest the words show little regard to the depth of thought the text invokes. I'm just better off reading it myself again.
